    is there a cap to how much absorption you have? cuz if there is no cap you could get 50%+ and be immune to dclones attacks :flip:

    Yes, there is a cap. It's capped at 40% for pvp, but not for pvm.

    Absorb doesn't make you immune to the particular element that you are absorbing. You still take the damage after resistances, then whatever percent of arbsorb you have you add that much to your health after the damage.

    I think that's how it works, according to what I have tested on someone before (though I may be wrong).

    IIRC absorb comes in effect after resistances and the healing part is first. If you're at maximum life you won't get healed. This is why one-hit-KOs can still happen with absorb.
